Dr Vishal Patel

I am a Clinician Scientist focusing on investigating the gut-liver axis in advanced chronic liver disease, including the pathophysiological roles of the gut microbiome and intestinal barrier in driving infection risk and antimicrobial resistance, and therapeutic interventions that can target these areas. Linked to this are how metabolic profiling and other high throughput systems biology-based techniques can further elucidate the mechanisms behind these changes and harnessing this knowledge can facilitate the development of better targeted therapies. Chronic liver disease is a condition which I am dedicated to managing clinically and still represents so much unmet need. Translational research in this area is therefore pivotal to improving patient outcomes and quality of life in those that are afflicted, and my group is determined to make real progress in this area.
